Defense Verdict in Premises Liability Suit
A Defense Verdict was obtained following a two day premises liability trial in Biloxi, Mississippi. A three year old child fell on a landscape light in a flower bed that resulted in second degree burns to his leg. Plaintiff alleged that the light was a dangerous condition. Summary judgment was entered in favor of defendant by the trial court. The decision was reversed by the Mississippi Court of Appeals. After a two day trial and almost 2 1/2 hour of deliberations, the jury unanimously returned a verdict in favor of the defendant.
